The paper reports that Mesut Ozil is already the highest earner on £140,000-per-week but will be offered a pay rise to stay.
Has Ozil lived up to his £42.4 million transfer fee at Arsenal?
Ozil, a third-generation Turkish-German, has made no secret of his love for Fenerbahce and has been public in his desire to feature for the club in the future.
The 26-year-old, who won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, enjoyed an impressive end to last season and is now showing his best form on a consistent basis. However, the main thing is he wants Arsenal. Nevertheless, it is very hard to predict in advance that decision.
The Mirror linked him with a freakish move to Fenerbahce in the summer but despite having family ties to Turkey, he is understood to be happy with Arsenal at the moment. It would be an honour.
Despite that, Ozil remains one of Arsenal’s most creative players, and he has already provided 23 goalscoring chances in the league this season, per ESPN FC’s Andrew Mangan.
Arsenal to offer Mesut Ozil a new deal, Demarai Gray available for £3.5m and Barca tracking Florent Thauvin are among Thursday’s rumours.
